AutoClosingMessageBox

The MessageBox which automatically closes after the specific timeout.

Usage

Use the AutoClosingMessageBox.Show method either as follows:

// Fire and forget - it about to be closed after default timeout(1000ms)
AutoClosingMessageBox.Show("Hello, World!");

or follows:

// Wait for some result or make the default decision
var result = AutoClosingMessageBox.Show(
                text: "To be or not to be?", 
                caption: "The question",
                timeout: 2500,
                buttons: MessageBoxButtons.YesNo,
                defaultResult: DialogResult.Yes);
if(result == DialogResult.Yes) {
    // to be
}
else { 
    // or not
}

You can also use the AutoClosingMessageBox.Factory method to get full control on MessageBox showing (for example, use icons):

var toBeOrNotToBeQuestion = AutoClosingMessageBox.Factory(
            showMethod: (caption, buttons) =>
                MessageBox.Show(this, "To be or not to be?", caption, buttons, MessageBoxIcon.Question),
            caption: "The question"
        );
if(DialogResult.Yes == toBeOrNotToBeQuestion.Show(
                                timeout: 2500,
                                buttons: MessageBoxButtons.YesNo,
                                defaultResult: DialogResult.Yes)) {
    // to be
}
else {
    // or not
}

Since v1.0.0.3 you can also use the CountDown feature:

AutoClosingMessageBox.Show("Hello, World!", timeout: 5000, showCountDown: true);

or in Factory-manner:

var messageBoxWithQuestionIcon = AutoClosingMessageBox.Factory(
        showMethod: (caption, buttons) =>
            MessageBox.Show(this, "To be or not to be?", caption, buttons, MessageBoxIcon.Question),
        caption: "The question",
        showCountDown: true // CountDown feature activation
    );
messageBoxWithQuestionIcon.Show();
